Boys Will Be Boys, And So Will A Lot Of Men

I hope you never let this down now, “Boys Will Be Boys”. And so will a whole lot of men. I forget who said this but there is great truth in this apt saying.

All one has to do is keep a close watch on the behavior of these two groups and the similarities will strike you immediately. For further clues, watch for signs such as acquisition of a new gadget.

The moment someone pulls out a new mobile phone and starts playing around with it, ninety to one all the (male) heads will swivel in that direction. If that same person had sat there waiting in the most outlandish clothes a la the Pied Piper, not one bit of attention would have been thrown his way.

But there’s something irresistible about a new gizmo which is certain to break the ice straight away.

The questions will pour thick and fast as all its plus points are discussed at length.

When that avenue is exhausted, comparisons will be made. Such as which model has the most functions, the best user-friendly keypad and so on and so forth ad nauseum and ad infinitum.

If you listen carefully, you might even catch glimpses of envy, subtly introduced but there nonetheless.

One dissenting voice might intervene to say that although admittedly it is one of the best available in the market, he has heard …

What To Do On Weekends?


Weekends should be a time to relax, to unwind and get over the stresses of the past-week while recharging the batteries for the week ahead. But, instead too many of us now actively dread the thought of the two-day break as it has become busier than the working week!

The truth is that for far too many, planning for the weekend has become akin to a working out the logistics for a co-ordinate military exercise. Making sure that we the squeeze the maximum amount of activity into a mere 48 hour period has become, like everything else in our lives, a competition. We compete against each other and the dreaded clock as we strive to produce the ‘best’ possible weekend.

But we don’t help ourselves, because we live in an age when too many of us are consumed with guilt when idle. So, instead of relishing any peace, there is a nagging doubt that we should be doing something productive; so it’s no wonder that we have trouble sleeping. Sleep deprivation is on the rise according to the government, as we simply find it far too difficult to switch off from life. Even though the body needs rest the mind simply can’t stop ticking over.

Why Online Dating is Better Than Real Life Dating


There are more and more people resorting to online dating to find their potential partners. This is not exactly surprising. This is because in some aspects, Internet dating can prove more advantageous than real world dating. Why is this so?

Imagine how it is like to date in the real world. How many nights have you asked your friends to set you up on a blind date, only to get frustrated? How many weekends have you gone to a bar in hopes of meeting someone, yet again end up frustrated? How many times have you asked a friend to watch a movie with you, or to dinner, yet boldly tells you in the end that you are just not their type?

I am sure you have had your share of dates. Even if you are the most handsome bachelor or a pretty gal, all your attempts to date may have always ended up in vain. With all these, you may end up wondering: is it your fault?

Does My Selection Display My Personality Type


Condoms come in a variety of shapes. Most have a reservoir tip although some have a plain tip. Condoms may be regular shaped (with straight sides), form fit (indented below the head of the penis), or they may be flared (wider over the head of the penis). Ribbed condoms are textured with ribs or bumps, which can increase sensation for both partners.

It’s up to you which shape you choose. All of the differences in shape are designed to suit different personal preferences and enhance pleasure. It is important to communicate with your partner to be sure that you are using condoms that satisfy both of you.

Condoms also come in a variety of colours. Some are flavoured to make oral sex more enjoyable. They are also safe to use for penetrative sex as long as they have been tested and approved.

Little Things Mean A Lot


All pain is not gain. The sum is a total of the parts. A truth brought home to you when you suffer from something as innocuous as a stubbed toe. The pain almost unbearable for a while. You shrug it off with ‘it’s only my toe’. How naive can one get.

That’s when you realise how vital that tiny appendage is to your physical well-being. A part of your body you’ve never really given much thought to.

As soon as the throbbing subsides, you delude yourself into thinking that it’s going to be all right.

But you’re only being lulled into a false sense of security. As you get up the next morning, you start your day feeling this burst of energy. And leap out of bed. Only to land on that left foot, the one with the stubbed toe. And discover that your foot is a mass of nerve endings. For some seconds which seem like minutes the pain blots out the brightness of the new day.
